Is that it Joe? Is the Bush administration your target, or are you actually going to run on a platform that doesn't simply attack, remove, or impeach someone from the other political party?
It's politics talking again. And Joe is proving to be no exception when he used to be an exception. But that was before he became part of the Gore ticket in 2000, when he morphed into something entirely different. The senator had been supportive of what was going on in Iraq, under the Bush-Rumsfeld team. Now it sounds an awful lot like 'I was for him before I was against him.' And this is after his 4 trips to Iraq where he said terrific progress is being made. It's a dumb move that will get him nowhere. The rabid left, where the campaign cash is, isn't interested in him, forever. They want him kicked out of the party and his name removed from the ballot.
Compared to Sec. of Defense Donald Rumsfeld, neither Joe Lieberman, Joe Biden, Hillary Clinton, John Kerry and John Edwards combined would have the wherewithal to come close to fighting this war as well as he has done, when taking into account the uniqueness of this war, where there is no standing army, but plain-clothed suicidal soldiers, Islamofascists, all over the world. Quite the contrary, the consensus of that bunch is retreat and surrender in any number of other ways they care to describe it.
